Event History: When this race was run for the first time in 1999, it was called the Braveheart Run-Swim-Run. Allen Stone, a local Navy SEAL and friend of the organizers, competed in the event and won the 20­–29 male age group.

Tragically, it was Allen’s last race. A short time later, he died during a Navy SEAL training exercise. To honor his courageous service, the race committee decided to rename the race as a memorial to our fallen friend and local hero. We hope you'll share our appreciation for Allen’s courageous spirit and participate in this exciting, family-friendly sporting event in Virginia Beach. With Allen's enthusiastic zeal for life and outgoing personality, we know he would have welcomed you!
